I went down to the lab the day before yesterday to take all of the product photography for the month of June. The gear for this month consists of the Sony Nex-5n for a camera body, and the LA-EA2 Lens adapter. I also got the very affordable Sony A-Mount DT 35mm f/1.8 Lens to use with the LA-EA2 Lens Adapter and the Nex-5n. In addition to that stuff, I go the extremely hard to come by Sony E-Mount 50mm f/1.8 OSS Lens, which is currently in stock by the way, and both the New Sigma 19mm and 30mm E-Mount Lenses!!
I was hoping to have this up yesterday, but some of the gear had a bit of dust on it and I had to edit that out in Lightroom. Needless to say it took a few hours to do all the photos, but they look so much better perfectly clean!! Some of the gear I get from BHPhotovideo.com is used by other reviewers as well, so it’s not always brand new out of the box and has a little dust from time to time. Not a big deal at all for real world use, but for product photography purposes, it can create a lot of extra work.
In any event, here is all the gear

And lastly, here is a shot of everything as it’s headed into the camera bag
As you can see from these photos the gear looks pretty nice and I’m really excited to try it all out. I had a chance to take a few quick snapshots so far the LA-EA2 lens adapter works incredible well!! The focus is lightning fast with video and photos just like the A57 for example. Amazing add-on for the Nex camera system I must admit and wish I had got it sooner to try!!
Stay tuned for some sample pics and video using all the goods Please put your request in as others have, if you want to see anything in particular.
Have a great weekend,
